Current outreach projects are described below:
1. Student Academic Exchange Programs (voluntary) for 5th grade students have evolved from collaborative work with Tulsa’s Sister Cities organization. Spanish Immersion students and accompanying staff chaperones live and study anywhere from 2-8 weeks in Costa Rica or Spain. A similar program exists for French Immersion students. Students live and study for three weeks in Amiens, France. They attend a public school there, L’Ecole Sagebien. The exchange partner schools send students and staff chaperones to EIS for reciprocal experiences.
2. Eisenhower Culture Boxes provide a resource for the broader community. Other schools and organizations within the Tulsa metropolitan area may check out the cultural and global studies resource boxes. This includes public, private and parochial schools as well as colleges, universities and community youth organizations.
3. In the fall of 2002, the school opened its new Global Learning Center (GLC). The GLC provides an enhanced library/media center that incorporates a cultural classroom, a kitchenette for the preparation of cultural cuisine, and a public
check-out area. Services the GLC offers to the community include cultural studies workshops for teachers, multicultural storytelling sessions for children and a design that allows for after-hours use of the facility by community groups and organizations.
